Vault Karaköy, The House Hotel is located in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Karaköy on Bankalar Caddesi, a convenient launching pad to explore bohemian Pera, historic Sultanahmet and the Galata Port.

Restored by the Agha Khan award-winning Turkish architect Han Tümertekin, the building structure retains original features, while the luxurious modern interiors were designed by Sinan Kafadar who was inspired by its imposing bank vaults, which also gave rise to the hotel's name. The contemporary classic room interiors also evoke wealth and luxury. An in-house art curator will organize events and exhibitions throughout the hotel. Also, a collection of precious books related to art, culture & music will be displayed.

Vault Karaköy, The House Hotel highlights Art & Culture, blending classic and contemporary styles, thus bringing together visions of Ancient and Modern Istanbul.

"10 minutes across the Galata Bridge to all the sights"

I travelled solo so had a smaller but adequate room. Clean, great service, huge breakfast and lovely rooftop restaurant. Ideal location - you just walk across the bridge to the Grad Bazaar, the mosques and the Egyptian spice market. Behind the hotel is the lovely Galata area - climb to the tower and explore the small streets around there and the main shopping street with the tram on the top.

"The best hidden gem in all of Istanbul"

This is a great hotel. I have now stayed here 4 or 5 times and would not even consider staying anywhere else. The location is central to public transport, all the key spots to visits including: Galata Tower, Karakoy, Beyoglu - yet far enough removed to feel like you are out of the bustle at night. The staff here have become like an extended family. They are attentive, helpful, friendly and assist where ever possible. The hotel itself is beautiful - old world charm meets modern luxury! All amentities are new, clean and housekeeping staff are also great and very responsive. The only problem telling people about how wonderful and amazing this hotel is that it wont remain a secret. Highly recommended. Book now - don't even think about it. Cant wait to be back


"Great Hotel....Great Location"

I recently spent 3 night at this hotel. No complaints. Location is great.....about 2 minute walk to train station....easy navigation. From there, easy access to all locations. Room was extremely clean and welcoming. Staff was great as well, super nice in all aspects. Great breakfast buffet with many choices and menu items available as well. Strong WIFI signal throughout the hotel and in the room. Will definitely stay there again next time!


"Beautiful hotel in great location with helpful staff"

We stayed here for 3 nights - we arrived early so they allowed us to freshen up in the spa (very welcome after a +13 hour flight). The hotel is wonderfully restored and the cellar beautiful. We stayed in a suite which was spacious and had a small balcony. The room was comfortable and they brought us extra bottled water whenever we called. The breakfast was very good - varied selection of cold and hot meals and chocolate brownies!! I would highly recommend the Vault - it is conveniently located to the tunnel, tram, ferry making it easy to access the tourist spots plus many great restaurants are in walking distance.



Marvellous experience the staff are so friendly and really try hard to wow you every minute of the day. Breakfast was delightfully as was our room. The bed was really comfy, big fluffy white towels and gallons of hot water. Not much more to say other than to say we were blow away with the location, so central and easy to get to everything, we stayed in the hotel the night before our cruise, perfect as its 5 mins away from the terminal.
